Very sad sale of 14 yr old 16.1 dark bay gelding looking for RoR showing/ dressage/ low level competition home.
First Morning also known as Bob retired from racing in 2014 with a slight tendon injury which healed very well and has now been completely sound over the past 5 years. Having ridden Bob in training, I took him on when he retired and have spent the last 4 years reschooling him for low level dressage, showing, SJ, XC, hunter trials and working hunter which he has competed in all of the above with great success, winning the riding club dressage area points league in 2018.
He has also done riding club, fun rides and beach rides. Although he has been reschooled for all disciplines, he can be strong when out cantering and quirky when jumping so better suited to dressage, showing, hacking home so for this reason he is NOT a novice ride.
Would suit small adult/ confident teenager. He is a very sweet horse, very easy to do on the ground with no vices. He is a very good doer and will live in or out with mares and geldings. Good to hack out alone or in company, he can have the odd shy when out alone but nothing nasty or sharp. Never bucks or rears and can have weeks/ months off at a time and can be ridden again with no issues.
He is great to box, shoe, vets, farrier, physio etc.
This a very sad sale of a much loved horse due to me wanting to move up the levels and team chase . Looking for knowledgable 5* home ideally doing dressage/ showing, will not just be sold to anyone.
